BAY CITY, MI — The new digital marquee for the State Theatre was unveiled Thursday during the annual Taste & Theatrics event.

The $220,000 Mayan inspired marquee has painted panels on either side of the marquee that mirror the murals over the stage inside.

The marquee is the latest project in a multi-phase endeavor to renovate the State, according to Mike Bacigalupo, executive director of the theater. Renovations began in 2000 and more than $2 million has been spent on items such as a new roof, carpet, refinishing hardwood floors, stage curtains, sound and lighting, updated electric, and now the marquee. Much of the money has come from donations from the community.
